Atlanta Auto Accident Law Firms

Our experienced Atlanta auto accident law firms at Montlick and Associates have been providing zealous advocacy to injury victims involved in all types of motor vehicle collisions since our law firm was established in 1984. We recognize the potentially devastating consequences suffered by personal injury victims injured in a Atlanta car accident. When a driver or other vehicle occupant suffers a spinal cord injury in a trucking accident or a traumatic brain injury in a motorcycle collision, the physical challenges of recovering from this type of injury can be magnified by the financial difficulty of coping with spiraling medical expenses and the interruption of household wages.

Although manufacturers have made significant improvements in vehicle safety which includes more air bags, crash warning systems and even driver override systems, motor vehicle collisions remain the leading cause of life-changing injuries and accident-related wrongful death. Hundreds of thousands of people seek medical treatment annually because of personal injuries suffered in Atlanta car accidents. While there are many factors that contribute to car accidents in Atlanta, some of the most common include negligent drivers that are engaged in an array of unsafe driving practices, including drunk driving, distracted driving, sleepy driving, excessive speed, right-of-way violations and more.

Understanding the Negligent Practices Involved in Atlanta Car Accident Claims

Our experienced Atlanta auto accident lawyers provide proven and effective legal representation to those involved in all forms of Atlanta motor vehicle accidents, including the following: tractor-trailer accidents (trucking accidents), motorcycle accidents, drunken driving accidents, distracted driving accidents, public transportation accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, rollover accidents, road departure accidents, head-on collisions, rear-enders and T-Bone accidents.

While some car accidents are caused by defective vehicles or unsafe roads, the legal basis for imposing liability in most car accident cases is driver negligence. This diverse array of accidents may be caused by many types of negligent driving behavior including the following:

  • Failing to focus one’s attention on one’s driving
  • Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol (DUI/DWI)
  • Blowing through red lights and stop signs at intersections
  • Inadequate vehicle maintenance, such as checking tires, brakes, etc.
  • Exceeding the speed limit or driving too rapidly for weather and traffic conditions
  • Non-compliance with right-of-way rules
  • Drivers that tailgate other vehicles
  • Aggressive drivers who engage in reckless driving practices

Our experienced and dedicated Atlanta auto accident lawyers have almost three decades of experience negotiating successful settlements with insurance carriers for negligent drivers. Our motor vehicle accident legal team understands the litigation strategies and negotiation tactics used by insurance carriers to avoid paying car accident claims or to minimize the exposure of the insurance company. When an insurance company knows that a car accident victim does not have the benefit of legal counsel, insurance adjusters will presume that they can take advantage of the injury victim. Sometimes this will amount to trying to induce a car accident victim to compromise his or her legal claim or trying to unreasonably delay settling a case to create financial pressure for the personal injury victim to settle for less than the value of the claim. Our experienced Atlanta car accident attorneys effectively counter such tactics for our clients.

Seeking Maximum Damages for Atlanta Auto Accident Victims

If you are involved in a collision between motor vehicles that involves several tons of steel colliding at high rates of speed, the possibility of life-altering injuries is extremely high because the human body is not designed to withstand this type of force. If you are involved in a Atlanta car accident, you may experience a wide range of injuries including:

  • Severe third degree burns
  • Head trauma resulting in brain injuries
  • Amputation or loss of use of limbs
  • Spinal cord damage result in paraplegia or quadriplegia
  • Damage to spinal disc
  • Dislocations, sprains and hyperextensions
  • Whiplash resulting in chronic neck or back pain
  • Damage to vital internal organs
  • Wrongful death

The value of your Atlanta car accident claim will depend on many factors, such as the severity of your injuries, the permanence of your injuries, nature of the driver’s wrongful conduct, amount of medical expenses, time off work, reputation of your car accident attorney and many other factors. While the specific recovery available in your case will depend on the particular facts of your case , some of the types of damages that are available in car accident claims may include:

  • Costs of medical care and treatment
  • Lost earnings from time off work
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Loss of affection and companionship of a spouse
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Impaired quality of life
  • Vehicle repair or replacement
  • Wrongful death-related expenses (including loss of guidance, inheritance, funeral and burial expenses)
  • Exemplary or punitive damages in cases of particularly reckless conduct

We represent people injured in motor vehicle accidents involving commercial carriers (18-wheelers), uninsured/underinsured motorist claims, drivers using cell phones, motorcyclists and pedestrians. When a person is involved in a collision caused by a driver that fails to stop at a red light or observe the speed limit, the result can be intense physical impairment and pain, resulting from burn injuries, traumatic brain injuries, internal organ damage, spinal cord injuries and broken bones.

Clarkston Dog Attack Claims (Dog Attacks/Dog Maulings): Depending on the specific circumstances of a dog attack, Georgia law may impose strict liability on a pet owner for the injuries their dog or other pets cause. If the dog owner has knowledge, or based on circumstances should have knowledge that his or her dog is dangerous, the owner may be liable for injuries caused to a dog attack victim in most circumstances. Similarly, when a dog owner does not restrain his or her dog on a leash as required by local ordinances, this situation may also result in a legal claim based on strict liability. Over four million people are attacked by dogs annually with twenty percent of the victims requiring medical treatment. If you, your child or other family member suffers a Clarkston dog bite or dog attack, our experienced Clarkston dog bite lawyers offer a free consultation so that we can assess your claim.

Our Clarkston wrongful death attorneys are committed to providing diligent and compassionate representation to families who lose loved ones because of the negligent, reckless or intentional misconduct of others.

Clarkston Workers' Compensation Claim: There are over sixty thousand employees who suffer permanent disability in workplace accidents and a hundred thousand more who die from a work-related illness caused by exposure to toxic substances like asbestos and lead each year. When you are injured while working at a construction site, industrial plant, motor vehicle accident or any other employment-related incident, our experienced Clarkston workers' compensation attorneys are dedicated to assisting injured employees obtain medical care, lost wages and compensation for permanent disability. While these are the only types of damages that are available in a workers' compensation claim, our experienced Clarkston workers' compensation lawyers also investigate to identify other potential defendants that may be subject to civil liability in a personal injury case.

Clarkston Slip and Fall Claim: Owners of businesses in Clarkston have a legal obligation to provide safe premises for those that visit their business. This requirement to remedy hazards on commercial property include taking precautions to prevent elevator accidents, slip and falls because of spills, tripping accidents caused by poorly lit walkways and more. While commercial property owners have the highest duty of care to protect those that come on their commercial premises, private and government property owners may also be liable for injuries caused by hazardous conditions depending on the circumstances. If you are injured on the property of another, our dedicated Clarkston premises liability attorneys investigate the relevant factors under Georgia law to determine whether you have a potential legal claim.

There are many injuries that could be prevented if product manufacturers and distributors took proper steps to make their products safe for consumers. Product liability law not only provides financial compensation to victims but also provides financial incentives to companies to make their products safe. Businesses that manufacture and distribute products have a legal obligation to conduct appropriate safety tests to make products safe or warn consumers of potential hazards. Our Clarkston product liability attorneys do not hesitate to take on businesses that harm consumers with their products.
